Investing in Education

I was able to fulfill my American Dream because of the affordable,
top-quality education I received. I want to share
this opportunity with all other Americans.
While teaching in Long Island public schools for over 30 years,
I mentored students and educators to make informed political and personal choices.

I will:

- Provide affordable education and training for our workforce

- Discontinue privatized testing

- Create new "Poor Man's Ivy League" colleges with free tuition for high achievers

- Free community college and technical training

- Emphasized support for apprenticeship programs

I have:

- Made education the first step in dealing with drug abuse

- Served as former chairperson of the Education and Youth Committee

- Secured affordable childcare by passing EARNS program
